PHC / The IPM Principle

The term Plant Health Care or PHC refers to a comprehensive program to control pests and disease, and provide soil supplements and cultural treatments that will give a tree or shrub a healthier growing environment when nature isn’t cooperating.

This holistic approach to Plant Health Care relies on the principles of Integrated Pest Management, or IPM. This is a program developed and practiced in agriculture, and normally is a system to monitor and control insects and disease on a single crop. PHC applies the guidelines of IPM to a residential landscape where there can be a significant variety of plants with a number of pests to be monitored and controlled.

Implementing PHC as a plant health management system results in reduced applications of pesticides, reduced costs, healthier landscape plants and a safer and healthier environment.
